HIV infection from dried blood?
      06/19/05 02:14 AM

I got a question on HIV infection from dried blood. I know no one has been infected with HIV due to contact with toilet seat so far. But I am still worrying about its possibility.

Today, I went to a public washroom. After flushing the toilet, I noticed there was some blood on the top/side of the toilet seat. The blood seemed to be dried. Because it's very possible that some part of my body might have touched that blood spot, I was in a panic since then. I'm in my 7 months pregnancy now. So this question is very important to me. Can anyone please tell me how great my risk of HIV infection is by casual touching the blood spot on the top/side of toilet seat?

Thanks a lot for the information!
